A tepid portray of a disturbed woman.
18 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

SPOILER AHEAD. I forced myself to watch this movie... It was painful. Ferrari still seems to be a bit wet behind the ears. After a few minutes I stopped caring about the characters having to endure the badly written script, bad acting, the unconvincing accents- the Chilean actors who played Argentinian characters just didn't make a decent effort shows and the director didn't care. Besides, just focusing on the early life of this writer seems incredibly naive since the story got way more interesting after tried to kill her lover. The text on the screen explaining what happened after the movie was is just unbelievably dumb and shows a waste of potential for the story. I never liked Bombal's writings- overvalued in my opinion- but her life could have been shown in a more interesting light. A wasted opportunity. Better luck next time.
